Automated Revenue Collection (ARC) is ‘Pain in the Neck’
Date: April 04, 2014
Federal Board of Revenue’s (FBR’s) automated revenue collection (ARC) is ‘pain in the neck’,
creating hurdles instead of facilitating the tax payers. The existing system being implemented by
the FBR in collaboration with Pakistan Revenue Automation Private Limited (PRAL) is not
delivering the results as there are many discrepancies which the industrialists face every day.
In the case of adjustment of sales tax that importers and businessmen pay during the import
stage, they are showered with a lot of obstacles in its proceedings. The FBR had revised the
automated revenue collection system (PRAL) without any proper planning.
